The Chairman, Councillors and Officers of Ardingly Parish Council are deeply saddened to learn of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh who has given such long and distinguished service to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
The whole Council wishes to send its deepest and most sincere condolences to HM The Queen and the whole Royal Family at this time of national mourning.
Our flag is flying at half-mast as a mark of respect.
Owing to the current public health situation residents should be able to sign an e-book of condolence which should shortly be available at www.royal.uk
However the Parish Council recognises that not all Ardingly residents may be confident in accessing an online book of condolence and have therefore taken the decision to provide a hard copy for those wishing to pay their respects. This will be the Village book of condolence and has been arranged in conjunction with St Peters Church
The book of condolence will be available at Hapstead Hall as follows:
Monday to Sunday
2pm to 4pm
6pm to 8pm
Currently the book of condolence will be available as described from 2pm on the 10th of April 2021 until 8pm on Friday the 16th of April 2021
A Member of the Parish Council will be present during the times mentioned above and all who attend are asked to respect the current government restrictions e.g wear face coverings when entering the hall, observe social distancing at all times
